    the building does not start construction till 2005....maybe it will be even taller in the end! but with 960-1000 feet and a 1200 foot spire, im more than satisfied!

    I made a few observations from the night-time rendering:

    Confirmation from Bob Fox:

    Your information, also in the public record for the project is correct. The demolition will begin in the Spring, the approximate height of the building is 960 feet, and the height of the antenna is 1200.

    Wow... I haven't gotten e-mail replies from Pelli, Forest City Ratner, SOM, SHoP, or Boymelgreen (still waitring for that one). How do you do it?

    First I called the firm. And they replied through email, so they had a better idea of who I was.

    Oh. I made my father call the Thor Equities rep in charge of the GAMT tower, he left a message, the guy called our house when we weren't home, my mother didn't know who he was so she said call back later, and he never called back again.

    Anyway back to BoA.

    Its Libeskind's Garden Tower without the exaggeration in the spire.

    This reminds me of another thing - the view from the reopened deck at the GE Building will be more impressive than it ever has been...

    From Downtown, with Conde Nast antennae (1150'?) and I threw in the New York Times Tower just for the hell of it.

    Those views are great, the building will definitely impact the skyline. It fills in the sky where Conde Nast doesn't.

    Heh...on that last rendering, if they had decided to build it east of ESB, it would look like a giant antennaed (sp?) bird-flip to a would-be terrorist...strangely apropos.
